Blood of Kings

Chorus

Let’s set the record straight about our history
Because I’m sick of the lies (we have the blood of kings)
From Nimrod to Menelik to the early Hebrew kings
Egypt and Nubia’s Pharoahs (we have the blood of kings)
The Za Dynasty, the Severan Dynasty
The “Black Madonna” statues (we have the blood of kings)
Look at the family crests of European royalty
So many black men’s portraits (we have the blood of kings)

V1

Since Mankind’s beginnings, there have been African empires and kingdoms
but in modern times, we’re brainwashed to think that we’re unequals
justifying our mistreatment by diminishing our people
conveniently forgetting the history of the region
like Carthage, the rivals of Rome, and the early Egyptians
the ancient city of Memphis, “The Black Land” known as Kemet
the depictions of the Black Moorish kings, and the hieroglyphics
were various shades of brown, now look at the Sphinx and you’ll get it
not to mention the Kingdoms of (Kush/Cush), Kerma, and Canaan
the pyramids of the Nubians, the Great Zimbabwe Nation
plus the global powers of (Axum/Aksum) and Meroe
and don’t forget Ancient Ghana, known as “The City of Gold”
the Swahili Civilization prospered from global trading
‘til the Portuguese came in the 1500s and enslaved them
the first country to recognize America’s independence
was Africa’s Muslim kingdom of Morocco, are you getting it?
our people were erased from history, taught that we were savages
by our racist conquerors to justify their massacres
and to this day, some of us act ashamed to be our race
but hold your heads up, we have the blood of kings running through our veins

Chorus

Let’s set the record straight about our history
Because I’m sick of the lies (we have the blood of kings)
From Nimrod to Menelik to the early Hebrew kings
Egypt and Nubia’s Pharoahs (we have the blood of kings)
The Za Dynasty, the Severan Dynasty
The “Black Madonna” statues (we have the blood of kings)
Look at the family crests of European royalty
So many black men’s portraits (we have the blood of kings

V2

Even in the days of the Prophet Jesus, when he was chosen
the only white people in Jerusalem were the Romans
and the Greeks, but the Romans used to persecute the Christians
for the first 300 years cuz they’d rejected the religion
check the Biblical descriptions of the prophets from the past
King Solomon was black and King David was his dad
plus the children of some prophets like Ham, the son of Noah
the Kedarites, Simeon, Cush, Canaan, and more
plus the kingdom of Makeda, the legendary Queen of Sheba
is in Ethiopia, Sudan, Yemen, and Eritrea
Ethiopia was the first major power in existence
to make Christianity its official religion
it’s the site of the first Hijra under the Prophet Muhammad
cuz Ethiopians were one of the largest groups among him
and don’t forget Nigeria’s Igba, or the Lemba,
the (Falasha/Falusha) and Qemant, who may be the Tribe of Dan’s descendants
I have to say this, there are no superior nor inferior races
we’re all God’s Creations but we have to stop this hatred
dehumanizing black people so other groups can gain
but stay strong my brothers, we have the blood of prophets in our veins

Chorus

Let’s set the record straight about our history
Because I’m sick of the lies (we have the blood of kings)
From Nimrod to Menelik to the early Hebrew kings
Egypt and Nubia’s Pharoahs (we have the blood of kings)
The Za Dynasty, the Severan Dynasty
The “Black Madonna” statues (we have the blood of kings)
Look at the family crests of European royalty
So many black men’s portraits (we have the blood of kings)

V3

They’ve found that Mankind started in Africa several million years ago
check the Cradle of Humankind and similar sites for visuals
up to 100,000 years ago homo sapiens left Ethiopia
to settle the rest of the world, and that’s according to historians
and modern archaeology, science, and genealogy
now would that mean that’s where Adam and Eve were from? …possibly
you can see “African” features in Natives around the world, specifically
with the Black Dravidians, Negritos, and Aborigines
in time their kingdoms crumbled and their descendants faced enslavement
fought Imperialism to gain freedom for our black nations
over 50 in Africa, others in the Caribbean
with black Presidents, doctors, activists, and businesses
colleges and medical schools, our own political parties
with beautiful capitals like Nairobi and Harare
and Addis Ababa, controlling our own money
these are things we’re still fighting for in these Western countries
even though we have our problems, we’re clearly not savages
but here, we’re never taught this, shouldn’t it be blasphemous
to claim you love God but hate His Creations? this has to quit
because the early humans all originally were Africans

Chorus

Let’s set the record straight about our history
Because I’m sick of the lies (we have the blood of kings)
From Nimrod to Menelik to the early Hebrew kings
Egypt and Nubia’s Pharoahs (we have the blood of kings)

The “Black Madonna” statues (we have the blood of kings)
